Van Treese signs contract

Former UofL forward Stephan Van Treese will officially play pro ball in Japan, according to his Twitter account. UofL sports information director Kenny Klein tweeted that SVT will play for Niigata Albirex Basketball, and he’ll head to Japan on Aug. 27. This news comes after Rick Pitino mentioned Van Treese was looking into playing in Germany. As a senior at UofL, Van Treese averaged 2.9 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Best of luck to him!

Matz Stockman on his way

Rick Pitino reported that Norwegian recruit Matz Stockman was waiting on his Visa. Ask and you shall receive. Just 48 hours after Pitino mentioned that, Stockman has his Visa in hand and will be on UofL’s campus tomorrow. The last incoming freshman the Cards are waiting on now is Jaylen Johnson.
